So why flip the title's words around? According to a Sega spokesperson "Both Creative Assembly and Sega have intended to invert the Total War naming convention for some time. The Total War series of games spans over 10 years of titles. We wanted to identify all of these as one series using a more obvious naming convention for players." The game is still set for release on March 15, 2011.
